Today, I am going to review the ENZOO Wireless Meat Thermometer. Peculiar name aside, I was hesitant to buy this thermometer. It seemed like another remote thermometer trying to imitate the ThermoPro TP-20 Remote Meat Thermometer.
The ENZOO wireless and ThermoPro TP-20 remote meat thermometers occupy the same remote wireless meat thermometer category as the best-in-class Thermoworks Smoke X4 Wireless Meat thermometer.
Still, I rolled the dice and bought it. I am willing to admit that I was completely wrong. The ENZOO thermometer really surprised me. I will say this right now, it did have the best wireless signal range of the thermometers I tested it against. These included the Veken Wireless 4-probe Meat Thermometer and the aforementioned ThermoPro TP-20.
That is not all that surprised me about this thermometer. So, what else does the ENZOO meat thermometer have that would make it worthy of a purchase?
A lot of things in fact. In this review, I will look at the features, usability, accuracy, durability and comparative price of the ENZOO Wireless Meat Thermometer.
First, let’s take a look at this thermometer’s features.
The Features of the ENZOO Wireless Meat Thermometer
I want to mention first that this thermometer came inside the nicest high-graphic box I’ve seen for a thermometer. Why is this important and why am I mentioning it first?
I review a lot of thermometers and you can tell a lot about a company by the pride they take in packing their product. I’ve bought thermometers EIGHT times the price of this one and they’ve come packed in a standard cardboard box.
After opening the box, there is a nice case with a foam insert in which the ENZOO thermometer and its components reside. This is another nice touch and saves you time trying to find a case yourself online.
Inside the case you will find:
- One transmitter with a four-section screen to monitor the thermometer’s four different probe temperatures.
- One receiver with four sections for the four different probes, a high-temperature alert section, a low-temperature alert section, a display at the top for the type of meat/oven/program temperature settings. It also doubles as the timer display.
- Four multi-colored probes, 4.7 inches long, attached to 43″ stainless steel mesh cables, cables are heat resistant to 716 degrees Fahrenheit. Probes are resistant up to 572 degrees Fahrenheit. The probes also come with long rectangular plastic winders to store the probes and their attached cables.
- Two grill clips to keep your probes off the hot grill grates.
- Four batteries for the transmitter and receiver.
- Warranty card to register your thermometer for 3 years.
- User’s manual
The probe storage winders (for lack of a better term) are another added bonus and in my opinion, the best design for storing thermometer probes. The long rectangular shape makes it easier to wind the probe cables around and you don’t feel like you’re putting too much tension on them or crimping them.
The Usability of the ENZOO Wireless Meat Thermometer
The ENZOO Wireless Meat Thermometer sends a signal from its transmitter to a receiver unit. You insert a thermometer probe that is attached to the transmitter unit into your meat and you can monitor its temperature up to 500 feet away.
So, how easy is it to use this thermometer? After a few cooking sessions with it, it is relatively easy to use.
All of the important functions are controlled by the buttons on the receiver unit and that is what I am going to discuss now.
The Receiver of the ENZOO Wireless Meat Thermometer
The receiver unit of the ENZOO meat thermometer has eight buttons that control all the functions of the thermometer. Let’s go through each of the buttons and their functions.
- Probe Button- Tap the button to scroll through the 4 thermometer probes to select them. Also, you can pair the transmitter to the receiver when you press and hold this button for 2 seconds.
- Meat Button- Press to select between 9 meat types, one self-defined program setting and one oven setting to track the ambient temperature of your cooking chamber.
- Taste Button- Press to select meat taste preferences. Choose between Rare, Medium-rare, Medium, Medium-Well, and Well-done.
- Up Arrow Button- Increases the temperature setting or the timer setting when in those modes. Hold down to increase faster.
- Down Arrow Button- Decreases the temperature setting or the timer setting when in those modes. Hold down to decrease faster.
- Timer Button- Allows you to set a countdown or count-up timer.
- Set/ Clear Button- Press the set button to set each probe’s temperature, meat and taste settings. In timer mode, press once to start timer, press and hold 2 seconds to clear timer.
- Power/ C/F Button- Power button as well as lets you choose between Fahrenheit and Celsius settings.
The receiver also has a stand/ hanger on the back to stand the thermometer on a tabletop or use it as a hanger.
Setting the HI and LOW-Temperature Alarms
The ENZOO has the ability to set Hi and Low-temperature alarms, but only in PROGRAM mode. All of the other preset Meat and Oven mode temperatures can’t be altered.
This shouldn’t be too much of a problem because you could theoretically have all 4 probes in PROGRAM mode set to your specific temperatures. In fact, I would recommend doing this as some of the temperatures are out of date now. 160 degrees for Pork? No Thanks.
Here’s a super-exciting video of me setting the high and low-temperature alarms:
The Transmitter of the ENZOO Wireless Meat Thermometer
The transmitter of the ENZOO allows you to visually see the temperatures of all 4 probes simultaneously. Each section of the screen is labeled for each probe, Probe 1, Probe 2, etc.
By pressing the power/ F/C button on the front the display will illuminate for 5 seconds. By pressing it multiple times you can switch between Fahrenheit and Celsius settings. To turn on or off the transmitter, just hold down the power button for at least two seconds.
The transmitter also has a stand/ hanger on the back to stand the thermometer on a tabletop or use it as a hanger.
The Wireless Range of the ENZOO Wireless Meat Thermometer
I have tested the wireless signal range of the ENZOO meat thermometer on multiple walks around my neighborhood. I can confidently state that it has the strongest signal of any of the remote meat thermometers I’ve tested. The signal easily reaches 50o feet.
The best indicator of a wireless signal is not where it drops out but where you can pick the signal back up. The ENZOO has picked up its wireless signal multiple times over 500 feet.
The Accuracy of the ENZOO Thermometer
I tested the Enzoo thermometer in a sous vide water bath set to 135 degrees Fahrenheit, it passed that test. I then tested the Enzoo alongside the Thermoworks Signals and Inkbird IBT-4XS meat thermometers while cooking chicken breasts in the oven.
The Enzoo thermometer responded to the temperature changes in the chicken right in line with the other thermometers. I would rate this thermometer as accurate.
The Durability of the ENZOO Thermometer
It would be presumptuous to speak to the lasting durability of this thermometer after I just recently purchased it. This is an area of all my reviews that I leave open for updates as I continue to use all of the thermometers long after my initial review is over.
I can say that the ENZOO has a shock-proof rubber case on the transmitter and thermometer bodies. I would expect they could weather a drop or two because of that.
Also, I like the probes’ aluminum alloy handles that are heat resistant up to 572 degrees Fahrenheit. There is also a minor detail I want to point out that I think is a nice feature of the probes. Where the probe cord meets the probe handle there is a little flexible spring that alleviates the tension at that point. The point where a cord meets a probe goes through a lot of stress so that is great little detail.
The Price of the ENZOO Meat Thermometer
The ENZOO meat thermometer’s price range is generally a little lower than the other remote meat thermometers discussed earlier. Considering that it has four probes, both high and low-temperature alerts, 500 ft wireless range capabilities, and a nice storage case, this thermometer is bringing a lot of value to the table at this price point.
So, this brings me to the obvious question. Is the ENZOO meat thermometer a better option than the ThermoPro TP-20?
Ok, maybe two questions. Is the ENZOO meat thermometer a better option than the Veken 4-Probe Wireless Meat Thermometer?
Both great questions. This leads me to my final rating of the ENZOO meat thermometer.
My Verdict on the ENZOO Wireless Meat Thermometer
I am going to rate the ENZOO Wireless Meat Thermometer a better thermometer than the Veken 4-probe meat thermometer. Why? It has a low-temperature alarm that is critical for long cooks such as smoking a brisket. It also has a longer wireless range as well as little extras like a storage case and probe storage wraps.
How does the ENZOO compare to the ThermoPro TP-20? The ENZOO has two more probes, the same functionality of the TP-20 in terms of having a low-temperature alert setting, and you will get 200 more feet on your wireless signal.
And at a much lower price than the TP-2o. Although I am hesitant to anoint the ENZOO the outright winner in the remote meat thermometer category. I will continue to use the ENZOO and see how it holds up to the rigors of multiple cooks.
I know the ThermoPro TP-20 is durable after using it a lot, so I’m not quite ready to prefer the new kid on the block until I’ve seen what it’s made of.
For right now I will say that the ENZOO Wireless Meat Thermometer is a great value at its price point for all of the features mentioned already. I would rate it a strong buy and a very, very close second to the ThermoPro TP-20.
I will continue to track how the ENZOO performs and update you on any new information.
Well, that’s it for this review. Thanks for reading.
